    Getting weird stain out of new plaster

    I'm not convinced thats iron on a 25 year old weir door. I have never had problems with iron before. In any case I tried rubbing spots with vitamin C pills and no effect. I also tried a gum eraser and a stainless brush. The brush seemed to help a tiny bit but I did not want to go crazy with it...

    Getting weird stain out of new plaster

    That’s weird because it’s never done that before. I’ll try that tho. Just run of the mill vitamin C from the grocery store?

    Getting weird stain out of new plaster

    Quartzscape is about 3 months old. My natural stone waterfall always leaves stone "dust" on my tanning ledge, which I am pretty good about brushing off. This time I was out of town for a long weekend and when I got back, most of the dust brushed off but it seems no amount of brushing with my...

    New(ish) plaster using up acid normal?

    I’m having to add 13oz of acid every other day just about. Goes right back to 8.2. It seems excessive to me. The rain isn’t helping either. I’m almost starting to think my acid is diluted or something. It’s the same 30baume I get from pinch a penny. My TA was 80 a few weeks ago, maybe I should...

    question about the economics of converting to SWG

    I was only spending 50ish a month on LC in the summer and 1/4 of that in the winter, so 1200 bucks on a SWG didnt really add up number wise. I did it so I didnt have to lug bottles of bleach from the store every month. Its hard to put a price on that. Also the water is softer. I really dont...
